Painter and decorator Jim Kyle scooped the accolade for regional winner in the annual competition organised by Dulux Trade.
He said, “I was shocked and pleased that my customers thought that much to put me forward. It’s nice to know that my customers appreciate what I’m doing for them.”
The 56-year-old has been in the industry for 40 years and forged his path with an apprenticeship with Alloa Town Council, crossing over to Clackmannan District Council, and by attending Falkirk’s Technical College.
After growing up in the Wee County he moved to the North East of Scotland then the Isle of Iona, where he now stays with wife Fiona.
Jim will go on compete in the national heat of the competition, to be held in London on Thursday 28 November, for the title UK’s Most Trusted Decorator.
He will receive Dulux Select Decorator membership, and could walk away with the overall prize of free fuel for a year.
Jim wanted to say a “big thank you” to his customers.
